PVC Pipe Industry Forecast and Production 2023 to 2031

Table of Contents

The PVC pipe market was valued at $6.3 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $12.1 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2022 to 2031.

However, PVC pipes are used in a wide range of applications, such as agriculture, industry, housing, electricity, etc., causing the statistics we see to be very fragmented. It isn’t easy to have a general understanding of this industry.

Therefore, we try to collect data from various channels for improvement and integration so that everyone can understand this industry. At the same time, I also know that this seemingly ordinary product is closely related to our life, but it is not very noticeable. What is it like? Where does its main manufacturer come from?

OK, let’s get start.

The Value Growth of the Construction Industry

The demand for PVC continues to be driven by rising demand from industries such as construction, healthcare, and packaging. Although the demand has decreased during COVID-19 due to its lightweight and high-strength advantages, PVC is widely used in various subdivision scenarios, such as pipes, windows, and floors in construction.

Ledes The Value Growth of the Construction Industry from 2021 to 2031

According to Oxford Economics, a British firm that provides global economic forecasts and econometric analysis, global construction output is expected to grow 42% from $10.7 trillion in 2020 to $15.2 trillion in 2030.

The industries mentioned above, such as construction, healthcare, and packaging, have contributed significantly to the growth of PVC.

NEMA Electro industry Business Confidence Index 2023

According to the business confidence index released by NEMA in 2023, it can be seen that during the outbreak of COVID-19, the market performance has been greatly affected due to the sharp drop in demand. Although expectations are generally lowered during 2022, based on historical trends and the continued recovery of the construction industry, we believe that subsequent data will return to normal levels.


Global Pipe & Hose & Fittings Market Size Research (2020-2027)

Ledes Global Pipe Hose Fittings Market Size Research from 2020 to 2027

The global pipe & hose & fittings market size will be USD 257.5 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow to USD 399.7 billion by 2027, with a compound annual growth rate of 6.5%.

The United States, as the largest market in the world, had a market size of US$70.2 billion in 2020, and China is expected to grow to US$83.3 billion by 2027, with a compound annual growth rate of 9.8%. Japan and Canada followed closely, with annual compound growth rates of 4.1% and 5.3%.

Of course, the total amount of this data is very large, but it includes the market size of metal pipes, so we will explain it to you one by one after collecting a lot of reference data.

PVC Market Forecast (2022-2027)

Ledes PVC Market Forecast from 2022 2027

The global polyvinyl chloride market will grow from USD 82.46 billion in 2022 to USD 89.02 billion in 2023 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.9%. The PVC market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.6% from USD 119.4 billion by 2027.

Ledes Global PVC Market Share in 2023

From the perspective of demand distribution, the Asia-Pacific region is the largest market for PVC, accounting for more than 50%; North America is the second largest market, followed by Europe, India, the Middle East and other countries.

CPVC Pipe Market Forecast (2021-2027)

Ledes CPVC Pipe Market Forecast from 2021 2027

The global CPVC Pipe market size was valued at USD 1573.66 million in 2021 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 8.27% during the forecast period, reaching USD 2534.47 million by 2027.

This type of pipe is usually used in the drinking water piping system in the industry. It was introduced in 1959 and has been widely used in fire sprinkler systems since 1985. So we think the demand for CPVC pipes will also grow as the construction industry recovers.

Corrugated Pipe Market Forecast (2020-2028)

Affected by the increased demand for drainage and sewer pipes, the demand for corrugated pipes will also increase. The following is the relevant trend data analysis and forecast from 2020 to 2028.

Ledes Corrugated Pipe Market Forecast from 2020 to 2028

The market was valued at USD 13,059.47 in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 21,221.04 by 2028; at a CAGR of 6.5% from 2021 to 2028.

Corrugated pipes are widely used; flexibility and easy bending are the most important features. It is a good complement to the defect that rigid plastic pipes must be bent during construction.

It can be said that most corrugated pipes can be easily bent without using any tools. Moreover, corrugated pipes in different markets have regulated their performance parameters, such as anti-punching ability & compression resistance, so the safety of internal wires or water flow can also be guaranteed.

Hot & Cold Plastic Pipe Market Forecast (2022-2027)

Ledes Hot Cold Plastic Pipe Market Forecast 2022 2027

The plastic hot and cold pipe market is projected to reach USD 8.7 billion by 2027 from an estimated USD 6.5 billion in 2022, at a CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period.

Plastic cold and hot pipes are included cross-linked polyethylene (PEX), polyethylene- raised temperature (PE-RT), polypropylene random copolymer (PPR), chlorinated poly vinyl chloride (C-PVC) and polybutylene (PB). While steel, cast iron, and copper are all excellent pipe materials that are still in use, the plastic hot and cold pipe has several advantages that they do not.

For example, as we have repeatedly mentioned, plastic pipes are light in weight, save time and effort in installation, and can save you a lot of labour costs on the construction site. In addition, plastic conduits generally have many advantages, such as corrosion resistance, low thermal conductivity, and stable chemical properties.

With the economy’s gradual recovery, the construction industry has become the main driving force of the plastic pipe industry, and the demand for cold water pipes in this industry will also increase. Like electrical conduits in Ledes products, they will grow rapidly with the market.

Drainage Pipes & Fittings Market Forecast (2022-2028)

Ledes Drainage pipes and fittings market forecast 2022 to 2028

The global drainage pipes and fittings market size was estimated at USD 13.19 billion by 2022 and is projected to reach an adjusted size of USD 16.22 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 3.5% during the review period.

A plumbing system is piping that transports hot and cold water or waste water in residential and commercial buildings. Pipe fittings are an important part of the pipe system installed in the building, used for connecting pipes and the necessary usage scenarios in the installation.

Global Fiberglass Pipes Market Research (2022-2030)

Ledes Global Fiberglass Pipes Market Research 2022 to 2030

Ledes Metal Plastic Industry Employees by Aga 2020 US

Finally, according to the age dimension, male employees in the metal & plastic industry are 42.9 years old. In comparison, the average age of female employees is 44.7 years old. The main reason is that the age of men in some technical positions is relatively young, and the penetration rate of men in this industry is greater than that of women.

Backend Installation Cost (Backend Application Market Analysis)

We study not only the production side but also the consumption side. After consumers purchase pipelines, the installation cost must also be calculated.

Let’s take the water pipe as an example. Referring to the relevant data of Forbes, the actual cost paid is 50-200 US dollars for labor and material costs. The average cost of installing home plumbing is $5,790.


In addition, the HIA for pipe installation costs of different materials differ. Copper conduit, for example, costs $3 per foot. PEX pipe costs $1.15/foot to install compared to $0.98/foot for CPVC and $2 to $4.50/foot for PVC pipe, depending on the diameter of the pipe.

Export & Production Data by Country


The data on China’s customs exports from 2020 to 2022 show an upward trend, and the increase is obvious.

Ledes PVC Pipe Export Volume of China from 2020 to 2022

Compared with 2020, in 2022, the weight of exported PVC pipes will increase by 22,292 metric tons, and the export value will increase by 102.77 million US dollars—year-on-year growth of 29% and 71%.


As for Malaysia, we only collected data related to PVC Pipe production. From the perspective of production from 2013 to 2022, Malaysia’s production peaked in 2019 and then declined rapidly until 2022, when it reached its lowest point.
